the secret money flowing through our elections, state, local, and national level . it is money that flows through nonprofit groups like karl rove's group or there used to be a group called priorities usa aligned with president obama. we have seen an explosion of what we call dark money. this is money where we do not know who the donors are. and we do not know how the money is being spent in many cases. we have made it a priority of ours here, and mine in particular, to try to shine a light on this secret money having an incredible impact on knowlections where we so little about where it is coming from. host: when you do your work for "mother jones," how much is mining the public database? guest: it is in all of the above approach to be honest. if you want to know anything about classified forms and 990 's, i am your guy. i can give you a crash course in work.per pac's there's a lot of mining of those information sources. there is a lot of information out there. a lot of corporations tell us how they spend the money. they hide it on their website. you do not really know how to look or to f
" and in the history books. >>> and training day, nerdland style. but first, yes, virginia, there is an election. >>> good morning. i'm melissa harris-perry. if i asked you what day is november 5th and you answered, duh, melissa, it's tuesday, instead of, enthusiastically offering the alternate correct answer, it's election day in america! well, you're in good company. because it's election day 2013, an odd number, which makes this an off year election. and well, to be honest, we tend not to get too excited about off year elections if voter turnout is any indication. in fact, it's not uncommon for voter turnout percentages in some off year state and local elections to be in the single digits. and that's among people who live in the jurisdictions that will be directly impacted by the outcomes of those elections. given the level of disinterest among people who actually have to live with the consequences of off year elections, finding a reason to care about the electoral politics of a state where you don't live is probably asking a lot. but here's why you might want to start paying attention. becau
republicans, 200 democrats. with an election year looming in 2014, next year, republicans obviously hope to hold on to the house and to better reach groups that did not vote in high margins for them in the last election, 2012. but, new polling data taken following the 16 day long government shutdown holds dire news for the gop. when asked who was responsible for the partial shutdown of the partial government, 53% of americans say congressional republicans. compared to 29%, president obama. 56% of americans consider the republican party as too extreme. compared to 48% who said the same in march. only 7 months ago. when asked if the election for the house of representatives were held today, 49% say they would vote for the democratic candidate as compared to 38% the republican candidate. and 11 point margin of difference. >> question, why aren't republicans doing better and where is the soul of the republican party? pat buchanan. >> the heart and soul is out in the country. it's at the grass roots, it's populous, it's conservative, it is traditionalist and wants to fight. no doubt the pow
issue the republican party formally recommended to its elected official members that they do something about after the mitt romney presidential loss last year. so, congressman tom cole was asked by russell berman of "the hill" newspaper in d.c. if there might possibly be time to give immigration a vote in the house between now and the end of the year, since it already passed the senate and, frankly, the house doesn't seem all that busy. here was his response. >> but, you know, immigration is a divisive and difficult issue itself. the idea that congress can -- look, we haven't -- we're not sure we can chew gum, let alone walk and chew gum, so let's just chew gum for a while." >> we don't know, we can walk and chew gum, let alone walk -- you know, can we just chew gum for a while? congressman raul labrador of idaho had been very involved in the discussions about immigration on the republican side. he now tells the "associated press", "i don't think there is going to be sufficient time for us to discuss immigration." congressman mario diaz-balart, also a leading voice for republicans on t
saturday morning in november, we are feeling the excitement. we are counting down to election day 2013. polls will be opening less than 72 hours from right now. we are also learning a whole lot more of what happened behind the scenes during the last presidential election. new juicy details on the campaign change in the campaign. one potential contender is in hot water this week for plagerism. what exactly did rand paul say? where was it said before? most importantly, will there be long-term fallout for rand paul going forward? today on up against the clock, very exciting, we inaugurate the legends division. our first congressional slate of contestants. stick around for that. first, this weekend marked one full month since the launch of the obama care website october 1st. >> that rollout we can safely say has been an absolute disaster for the obama administration both in terms of image and impact, all for the very simple reason the website has not worked. the driving principle behind the site is to acquaint uninsured americans with the various health insurance plans available to them to
been going for democrats and presidential elections. and i think we're going to have success on tuesday if we do what we know how to do, turn out voters. the president coming to arlington for the ticket today will really help with voter turnout. we feel good with what we see. i think the election, if it works out the way i suspect it will, it is going to be a repudiation of the sort of no compromise tea party strand of the republican party. there is republicans who aren't in that mode, but in virginia, and in many places now, it is the no compromise tea party wing that is taking control. and i think that brand of government, which virginians saw and experienced with the shutdown is going to get rejected on tuesday. and then with that, back to the rule reforms, look, i'm not an expert on the senate rules and they're complicated. with would we do a complete elimination of the filibuster? probably not. the filibuster has had a venerable part of the tradition of the senate. but the problem is the filibuster was reserved originally for only the most extreme issues when people would take the
jersey governor hoping to use a big victory tomorrow to show republicans he is the most electable. mitt romney hinted christie could be the party's savior in 2016. hillary clinton is calculating her own appearances with her first foray back into the campaign spotlight, stumping for close friend terry mcauliffe. but that new book, "double down" is spilling big-time campaign secrets from the 2012 election. two bombshells include dirt on chris christie's background that came up during the vice presidential vet and tpossibiliy they would swap joe biden for hillary clinton. two veteran campaign reporters say president obama saying i just don't know if i can do this, as he prepared for the second debate. let me bring in our company, editor in chief of reason magazine, matt welch and the "washington post" politics reporter, jackie kucinich. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with chris christie because he's got an election he's almost sure to win tomorrow. he's looking to send a message but as also passed over to be the vice presidential nominee. let me play for you what mitt romney
before the election, mitt romney was in the great state of virginia telling voters he was going to win. >> thanks so much, you guys. virginia is the best. >> virginia is the best. and it's also the state barack obama won. one year later after a gop autopsy and a vow to rebrand, they haven't learned anything. any moment dozens of senate republicans are expected to vote against a gay rights law that would ban discrimination against gay and lesbian employees in the workplace. that's 39 republicans who didn't get the memo. why? because they haven't learned anything. what about women's rights? republican senator lindsey graham is now launching a new fight against a woman's right to choose. calling for a 20-week abortion ban. >> i've been a pro-life member of congress since day one. i'm proud to lead this charge. >> todd akin was once proud to lead this charge. how'd that work out? again, they haven't learned anything. and this extreme ideology is particularly bad. look at virginia. the republican candidate for governor ken cuccinelli is as far right as they come. he thinks same-sex relation
tonight. six days out from the election day in virginia. the governor's race is coming down really to the wire. depending on the poll that you're looking at. the race could be tighter than expected. a roanoke college poll hasterry mccoloradoive with a lead over ken cuccinelli. quinnipiac university finds mcallive with a smaller lead over the attorney general. no matter which poll you're looking at, this is so clear. social issues matter. and women could make the difference in this election. and, of course, turnout. now, according to quinnipiac, female voters in virginia backed mcallive over cuccinelli. the "washington post" finds the margin bigger with kuch necessarily trailing by what, 24 points among whelm.cuccinelli trailing by what, 24 points among whelm. this could be the reason. cuccinelli was one of three attorneys general who did not join a bipartisan push for reauthorization of the violence against women act. also cuccinelli was the first attorney general to sue the federal government over obama care, which expands access for women health care. he voted against a senate bi
for a resounding win that he hopes revokes memories of 1998 that helped prove electability mattered. the national donors, christie hopes it does again and it gets him distance from the house republicans. the vetting of christie will start earlier than he may have expected thanks to this new book. according to a memo on christie from the vetting team from romney's vp search, it described in the back this according to the "new york times." romney's team was left with questions about potential land mines involving christie. a defamation lawsuit early in his political career. a securities and exchange settlement involving his brother and medical history. beth i hadder who is led the search committee told the new york times in a statement the paper was arranged by christie aide and governor christie complied fully with the romney campaign's request for do you means in a timely manner including a medical reporter from his internist and cardiologist. not complete denials, but a statement of fact. according to reports on the book, romney's super secret vetting process was known as project goldfish and po
for watching "the ed show" tonight. election day is four days away and all eyes are on virginia's gubernatorial race. on sunday, president obama will join democratic candidate terry mcauliffe for a rally in arlington, virginia. as we head into the final stretch, the polls find mcauliffe ahead of republican challenger, ken cuccinelli. roanoke college finds mcauliffe with as much of a 15-point lead but quinnipiac poll has him leading by four points. in an e-mail sent to supporters thursday, mcauliffe made it very clear, don't get comfortable and don't sit this one out. mcauliffe wrote to his supporters, in off year elections like this when tea party voters turn out more reliably than democrats. for 45 years, the political party that controls the white house has lost our governor's race the next year. in 2009, fewer than 40% of virginia voters cast a ballot for governor, despite the fact that nearly 70% voted in the presidential election the year before. there's a lot at stake in the state of virginia, no question about it. ken cuccinelli has spent his entire career as an elected official, trying
accountability. this is what the enemies have been doing since they first learned of his election just as the southern states began moving towards secession. well, tonight the hate obama party and all its anger and misery. david corn and ron reagan, both are msnbc contributors. gentlemen, thank you for joining us. this sabotage campaign that was laid out today in today's politico puts together all of the republican party's four-year war to ab soj the affordable care act. he writes from the moment the bill ruz introduced, both houses of congress announced their intention to kill it. the gop faithful then up up their crusade past the president's re-election. let's look at just a few instances of the gop's attack to derail the health care law at all costs. republicans withhold all support when the law first makes its way through both chambers of the commerce in 2009. in 2010, scott brown of massachusetts wins the special election up there after running a campaign to kill the legislation. his victory gives the gop 41 votes in the senate which gives them the power to block any fixes or impr
head to the polls tomorrow for election day 2013. while not all of you have a ballot to cast, there are some key races. david shuster has more. david. >> in new jersey, republican incumbent governor chris christie, appears to be heading towards a landslide victory. poised to make huge inroads with women voters, latinos and african americans. poised to say he is the most electable republican. for several weeks crifti christs been blasting are conservative republicans. >> we need to show the republican party we can win again. guess where they're going to be watching tuesday, right here, going to be watching us. >> more significant given the outcome the republicans are bracing for on election day in virginia. ken cuccinelli, the state attorney general is a tea party darling, staunch fiscal and social conservative, he finds himself down nearly 10 points. the former democratic party ken mcauliffe. but mcauliffe, makes this, look for soul searching on the right wing of the gop and the part of republicans to try otake the party back. >> david back to christie, could a big win -- oka
the campaign trail ahead of tomorrow's election is giving voters a potential preview of the next presidential contenders. >> it sounds like you're planning for a message beyond new jersey. is that a fair assessment? >> i'm not planning for it. i just think it's inevitable. >> don't forts about hillary clinton. even without stepping food in iowa this weekend she was still the main event in the crucial presidential primary state. >> 2016 is hillary's time. run, hillary, run. if you run, you'll win and we'll all win. >> life support as they scramble to repair healthcare.gov by the end of the month deadline. can the obama administration recover from the damage already inflicted by the rough rollout? >> whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the foundation of his second term. i think it's rotting it away. >> double down. they changed the game with political tell-all that went behind the scenes with 2008 election. mark halperin back with latest insider scoop that's already shaking up the political landscape. t
expressions of that will be elections next year. >> warner: u.s. troops left iraq for good at the end of 2011, though it continued some military sales and development aid. now maliki wants a lot more military hardware, including apache helicopters and fighter jets, and stepped-up counter- terrorism and intelligence assistance. but after the meeting, maliki sought to respond to the president's urging that he be more politically inclusive at home. >> ( translated ): what we want is for iraq and the region to be able to work together. and we are working in iraq and mobilizing our people to fight al qaida. the democractic experience in iraq is nascent and fragile, but it was born very strong.; we democracy needs to be strong because it alone will allow us to fight terrorism. >> warner: the need is urgent: since the spring, iraq has seen the worst bloodletting in more than five years, mostly directed against shia civilians. and united nations report today issued eye-popping figures for october-- nearly 1,000 more iraqis killed, many at mass gatherings like weddings, funerals and schools. the toll
presidential election in the soon to be released book "doubledown oi "doubledown," the see get to game change. the authors write that the president's inner circle secretly considered replacing vice president joe biden with then secretary of state hillary clinton on the ticket during the most recent election. and they went so far as to get the opinion of focus groups. but in the end, research showed there wasn't a big enough spike in support to justify that bold move. the vice president was not made aware of these deliberations. the authors also write president obama grew tired of bill clinton during a golf bonding outing, so much so they didn't even finish 18 holes. and another shocker, the authors say mitt rom any nixed chris christie off his short list for vice president because of several up answered questions including some about his medical history. >>> halloween is over, but here are some tricks and treats that arose. we start in canada where there wasn't your average x-ray. border agents at the montreal airport found three hollowed out pumpkins filled with about four pounds of company
was elected. what are you making up? is this a church, state issue? >> you got in on the consistent, the ones that depict the new pope, john? >> who knows. saved a lot of money. those guys have not done anything that was not known to the national security council and the white house and the idea of blaming these guys who are doing the job they were signed to do and oh my goodness, for miss feinstein, that there's a touch of hypocrisy here. >> there's a lot of outrage. i'm with clapper on this issue as well. i mean, i think because of the technological advances and the fact that we can now, you know, look in on people's cell phones, that you know, there has to be some more guidelines brought into this thing. but overall, friends spy on friends, it's not going to stop. >> what do you think of that? >> i think, well, i'm not enough people, clearly. there's no doubt that this has been going on for ever in one form or another. you can't tell me that the administration didn't know about it, because they were given reports about all of this. this came from -- this is ridiculous. so we all knew i
in place by the transitional government does lead to a democratically elected new government that is expected to happen over the next several months. so as we move along the map, we are headed toward democracy at least electoral democracy. what actually happens in terms of who is doing the governance in the country and who is making policy decisions i think for now, we don't really know, how that will develop. >> how can you say the country is moving towards democracy when we have seen hundreds of protestors killed, and basic rights that a lot of americans take for granted and like freedom of the press are not allowed in egypt. >> that has been a cause for a lot of concern, i think both in the u.s. and on the streets in egypt. egypt. the popular sentiment in egypt is pro military. they feel the muslim brotherhood hijacked the revolution and were exclusionary in their governance and supportive of violence. people are supportive of the military crack down and people are asking for more of a military crack down. >> in a way the military and interim government are caught between
. >> the way we're going to stop obama care, it's going to come from the american people. >> when we elect me president of the united states, we're going to get rid of obama care. >> memories. we're going to get rid of obama care. how'd that work out? just like it was going to be his waterloo. need more proof the anti-obama crusade is hurting the party? look at the great state of virginia. a test case for far right conservatives. ken cuccinelli, the republican candidate for governor, and since the shutdown he's sinking down 11 points in the polls this summer. but today his big response was to call in tea party senator rand paul who voted for the shutdown. see the pattern? their answer to rejection is to go even farther to the right. how's that for a winning strategy? let's put the fire out with more gas. good luck, republicans. joining me now is congressman john yarmouth, democrat from kentucky, and joan walsh from salon.com. thank you both for being on the show. congressman, after romney lost the election, the gop swore it was rebranding. but now we have ted cruz in iowa continuing with this
? >> hindsight is 20/20. >> that's why you're there is to say it's not hindsight. >> re-election rival and former governor mitt romney and on "meet the press" this weekend where he accused the president of dishonesty and had this warning about the president's second term. >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from and that is that he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. and whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the foundation of his second term. i think it's rotting it away. >> wait, there's a little bit more, "the washington post" obtaining an internal memo that shows an outside health adviser warning of trouble ahead for the rollout. telling the administration, quote, i do not believe the relevant members of the administration understand the president's vision or have the capability to carry it out. >> looking back, people are going to be scratching their heads for years going how did they make this mistake? so how do mistakes like this happen
year since the 2012 presidential election and if this is the annual checkup, it's largely the president's health care law that's going through a major stress test. and right now, the white house is reaching out for support in the face of continuous oh criticism of the law and its rollout. later this evening, the president will speak about the benefits of health care reform at an organizing for action event. and later this week, he'll travel to texas to thank volunteers helping people enroll in the new health care exchanges. the president is keeping up a furious public information push, as dueling headlines leave many consumers still confused over the law and its impact. in the "washington post" for consumers whose health premiums go up, sticker shock leads to anger. in the "new york times" millions eligible for free policies. and i'm sure you can imagine that last story was not the one singled out by losing presidential candidate mitt romney on "meet the press." >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from, and that is that he told people they could keep their

's an off/off year. it is november. and there are a bunch of elections on tuesday, next week, november 5th, just four days from now. and the nice thing about that in an off/off year if you're a politics dork because we don't have all that many elections happening in a year like this, the number of races that are going on that are interesting and potentially politically important is small enough that it's possible to keep them all in your head at once. you don't even need notes. new jersey has the republicans race on tuesday, chris christie versus barbara buono. even though this week he admitted publicly he will not promise to actually serve out his term as governor. so his closing argument now is effectively, elect me even though i don't totally want the job and i can't say i won't quit half way through. still, though, the governor was up by 33 points in the most recent poll. the one interesting thing to watch in new jersey is if that big margin holds on election day, what are the down ballot consequences be of that in the state? new jersey democrats have an eight-seat majority in the sena
that are running for re-election want to delay because they don't want to face the people that are being affected by the law because they want to win their election. that should tell you everything you need to know about what's going on here and how people are perceiving it. the president's numbers are in the tank. clearly, i'll give you people are sick and tired of washington. it goes for republicans, washington, the president. >> his approval rating is double the republican party. >> it's a classic example of what they're tired of. they're tired of politicians like the president making promises they can't read. >> a headline reads the obama sabotage campaign. it argues that some of the problems with healthcare.gov have to do with the roadblocks put in place by republicans. most republican governors declined to create their own insurance exchange and in fact 36 exchanges, far more than intended. the tea party patriots website suggested that since washington was not equipped to handle so many exchanges, quote, both financially and otherwise this means the entire law could implode on itself. is th
